Happy National Children’s Dental Health Month!

February 25, 2021
Posted By: Dr. Fairfax & Associates Family Dentistry

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, so what better time than now to better understand the importance of dental care for kids? Children and teens require excellent oral care, just like adults. Part of this care includes good oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing, as well as regular visits to your dentist for exams and cleanings. 

The Importance of Oral Health Care for Children

Oral health for your child should begin even before their first tooth emerges. It’s important to gently clean their mouth and stimulate their gums, which you can do using a soft, wet washcloth. When your child’s first tooth appears, make sure you visit your Fairfax children’s dentist to ensure their oral health is developing as it should. 

Maintaining your child’s oral health paves the way for a healthy mouth when their permanent teeth come in. Without proper oral health care, your child can also develop cavities, gum disease or inflammation, difficulty chewing, and tooth or gum pain. Not only should you practice good oral hygiene habits at home, but your child should also visit a dentist to make sure their oral health is where it needs to be. Your dentist can also identify any risks and make a treatment plan if necessary.

Happy Visits Prepare Your Child for Their First Dental Exam

No teeth are too tiny for dental care. As soon as your child’s first tooth erupts, we recommend bringing them to our office for a “Happy Visit” to meet our team and take a ride in the dental chair. Happy visits allow your child to get more acquainted with us and the idea of going to the dentist, so when it’s time for their appointment, they will be more comfortable and excited for their visit.
